Joey Essex's date burped in his face

Joey Essex's date burped in his face.

The 26-year-old reality TV star has just finished shooting the first series of 'Celebs Go Dating' and, although he likes to test his potential lovers by wearing inappropriate clothing to dinner, he has admitted he was stunned when one of the women he took out for a meal belched across the table.

Speaking to the RadioTimes.com, he said: "If I'm going for a meal, I'll wear a really ridiculous outfit. I wore a tennis outfit [for a first date on the show] because I thought, if I wear a tennis outfit, then she can only like me for being who I am.

"She's got to look at me and go, 'Right, he dresses really strange but I did like him', you know? Sadly she started burping in my face. Things got a bit weird."

However, the handsome star hasn't been completely unlucky in love as he's found a lady that he genuinely has a spark with after they hit it off while playing table tennis in London.

He explained: "I've had three dates, I'm about to go on a second date - I've found someone I actually like.

"She's nice, she's fit, she's honest. All good..."
